I'm very sensitive to the fact that being charged with a crime is a scary and confusing time for my clients, so I do everything I can to make an awful experience less scary. You'll never feel talked--down to, or that you're wasting my time.  Trust me and we'll get you through whatever difficulties you're facing.

Call anytime, I NEVER charge for phone or in-person consultations.

  • Brian Vincent Manchester

    I met Gary through my association with the National College for DUI Defense. Gary is a warrior in the courtroom. He strives not only to be the best lawyer and know the law, he also is constantly learning the science behind blood and breath testing and field sobriety tests. I highly recommend Gary.

    Gary has personally helped me with my jury trial in Grosse Pointe Shores. His knowledge of the specific details of handling a complicated OWI blood case is exceptional. I would highly recommend him.
